Had a rough start to the season this year…..ten minutes out of the dock I hit something pretty hard, torched the prop and bent my rudder, the rudder port is still good.  Been thru this area hundreds of times and whammo all of a sudden.

Talked to the parts dept. @Sanger and they said three week lead time…ouch

Which lake were you on? You sould be able to get those both fixed at the prop shop in mukilteo. The prop is probably $100-$125 to get fixed and the rudder for under $100. Hmm, at second glance that prop may be beyond repair.

Sorry that happen to you.. I’ve been down that road. I’ve had my boat fixed, replace prop, rudder, trak fins, drive shaft. Got it on monday the following
sunday I hit a log on the Sac river. I lipped it back for 45min. I ended up fixing it myself. straightening up the prop. (four blade Oj). And had a machine-shop straighten up the strut. Check out this site they have part for your boat.  I’ve seen worse props fixed, I guess it depends on the shop. Hope that helps.

Sorry to hear that. 


I did that the first year I got my DLX - about 4 summers ago.  Our lake regularly is up and down and it got down pretty low which exposes all kinds of rock.  I was idling out of the dock area also and WHAM!  Most horrible sound ever.  It must have just been at the lowest point of the prop cause I never saw it and I even jumped in the water and couldn’t find it.

Luckily, our local Marine prop company could straighten it out…only 2 of the 4 blades were affected.

I actually had them (at their recommendation) re-shape it so it is more like the ACME 911 now.  TONS of low end now.

I’m surprised that these parts aren’t more readily available.  You can get a prop this afternoon if you want.

Glad I’m not the only one!  Took the rudder off, bent the strut, shaft and trashed the prop this weekend on the Ohio River.  Ran over a very large tree submerged. The shaft got into the thru hull a little and the prop got up into the hull slightly.  Just enough to go through the gel coat.  Anyone know how to uncouple the prop shaft from the V-drive?  It’s a 2006 V230
